Summer can lead us to take part in outdoor activities; to ensure you can seek refuge from the heat at any time, make sure your HVAC system is always in proper condition. Dave’s Heat & Air, a leading expert in heat and air systems, shares a few maintenance tips for you to keep in mind.
- Check your air filters. Air filters should be checked monthly. You want to make sure air flow is unblocked and that contaminants in the air are not circulating throughout your home. Have a spare filter ready in case you need to change your filters sooner than the usual three-month mark.
- Make sure vents are not blocked. Blocked vents are bound to restrict airflow through HVAC systems, causing overheating and performance issues. If this happens, you will be in need of immediate heating and air repair. One way to keep vents clean is by moving furniture, rugs, carpets, and other objects away from them.
- Inspect exterior cooling units. Summer can be a great time to take notice of your exterior cooling unit by examining it for debris buildup. Clearing away debris and grass clippings from the surrounding area helps make sure your exterior cooling unit provides ample airflow and cooling for optimum performance.
- Think ahead to heating season. Make sure you schedule HVAC maintenance for your heating systems when fall sets in. A professional contractor will tune up your furnace, heat pumps, boiler, and any other heating equipment you have at home. Take these preventive measures to make sure you are ready for when the cooler months roll in. You can also set your programmable thermostat schedules for the heating season as early as now.
